When I heard that Lindsay Lohan recently had some Billy Joel lyrics tattooed on her torso, I was intrigued. What Piano Man classic did Lohan go with? Something from “Only the Good Die Young”? “Captain Jack” perhaps? Maybe “She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes / She can ruin your faith with her casual lies?” or something else provocative from “She’s Always a Woman to Me”? And then I saw the photo over at TMZ…
“I Go To Extremes”? From 1989’s Stormfront album? Okay, that’s… original. I’m guessing this was a first for the tattoo artist. I have a feeling she’ll be explaining the source of that tattoo’s wisdom long after she’s left “the prime of [her] life.” The Office’s Michael Scott would get it right away, of course, but then again, he once scored his homemade thriller, Threat Level Midnight, to Joel’s “Running on Ice.”
But even though Stormfront isn’t exactly Billy Joel’s most revered album, I think Lohan could’ve elected a more appropriate tattoo lyric from its songs. Vote below for which lyric would’ve packed greater cred.
